Mantra Meditation Group to practice and learn the technique of Mindfulness Meditation. A personal, soft chanting of
sacred mantras on meditation beads, employing the ancient yogic tradition of vibrating spiritual sound as an illuminating path to self-discovery.
Mantras are sacred sound vibrations composed of transcendental syllables containing great spiritual power, or shakti. The proper vibration of these mantras enables us to concentrate and focus this spiritual energy, allowing us to experience the wonderful benefits. In Sanskrit, the word man indicates the mind, and the word tra indicates that which delivers, or liberates. Thus the effect of chanting a mantra is that one can deliver the mind from contemplation of the mundane in order to reach spiritual satisfaction.
Meditation can be quite a tricky practice because the mind is like a naughty child. By its very nature, the mind tends to wander off during the meditation practice. If ones energy is low at the time of meditation, there is every chance of falling asleep. If one's energy is too high, fantasy and distraction become the barriers. At such times, meditation beads provides the much-needed anchor...........

Siddha yoga is primarily a spontaneous process which begins at the time of receiving a mantra. At this time, the process
of kundalini awakening begins in an individual. Initially, asanas (postures) and mudras (energy seals) occur of their own accord, various breathing patterns manifest, and the ladder of yoga is gradually ascended (sense withdrawl, concentration, meditation, etc. all happening spontaneously.) There are innumerable benefits that are accrued even in the very early stages of this practice. These vary from improved health, including the elimination of various disease, to mental peace. And of course, regarding spiritual development, it has been said that without kundalini, there is no yoga.
